DARIEN, NY (WIVB) — One of North America’s largest Christian music festivals returns to western New York this week.
The Kingdom Bound Festival, featuring over 40 artists including Matthew West, Skillet and We The Kingdom, will take place July 24-26 at Six Flags Darien Lake.
“We live in a world that wants hope,” said festival director Donna Russo. “Real hope comes from knowing the gods of this universe. Kingdom Her Bound will bring together artists and speakers who share that hope with all attendees.”
Kingdom Bound returns to Darien Lake in 2022 after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hosted by Houghton University, this faith-based festival also features late-night events such as movies, bonfires and worship sessions with Elevation Rhythms.
You can purchase a day ticket for $72 or an entire event for $164. Camping options are also available. Discounted tickets are available to Six Flags season pass holders.
